  2. Tap Google.
  3. Tap the account name (email address).

Tomwilly2010, being able to backup your content on your cell phone is very important. The Verizon Cloud is a premium media storage service. You can get 500GB of storage for $5 per month. Or you can get 1TB of storage for $9.99 per month http://spr.ly/6587DWYeF.

 

To make sure we provide you with the best option to back up your device, can you please provide me with the make and model of the phone that you're currently using?

Contacts can be stored in the Verizon Cloud service for no charge.  You only need to pay for Verizon Cloud service if you want to store documents, pictures and files.

everyone I talked to at verizon told me I had to pay for cloud to back up contacts I just installed the cloud app on my android and it says I have contacts backed up now. However I though I had contacts backed up Friday night so I had verizon teck assistance help me reset my phone. It automatically reloaded contacts but only email contacts no phone numbers. More help from Verizon teck  cannot find those contact numbers. I have added all the numbers I could find. That seems to be the best I can do.

That is correct, TOMWILLY2010. You would have to pay for the Verizon cloud to back up other information from your phone. With regard to the contacts we do offer the basic back of your contacts for free now. You mentioned the emailed contacts came back but not the numbers that were saved. To clarify, do you have the Verizon cloud added to your phone applications?
